This ginger peach smoothie is loaded with more than just peaches. It’s super quick & easy to make and is bursting with nutrients from cherries, mangos, yogurt, and a bit of your favorite milk!
Now that I’ve broken the seal with my first peach recipe, this Cozy Peach can’t seem to stop! Okay, maybe that’s just because it’s officially peach season. Peaches are inexpensive, ripe, and deliciously sweet and juicy. Not to mention that they’re packed with fiber, contain antioxidants, and are a source of 10 different vitamins.
This refreshing ginger peach smoothie uses just five ingredients: peaches (of course), cherries, mango, yogurt, and a splash of milk. And guess what? You can use frozen fruit in this smoothie recipe, which makes it super quick & easy to make.
To be honest, I didn’t always get smoothies. To take it a step further: I wasn’t always a fan of fruit. Up until a few years ago, I only ate strawberries, apples, and peaches. With sugar on top. And the peaches usually didn’t have skins on them (okay, I didn’t even know you could eat peach skins until I was 15 years old. Ugh.)
Maybe I changed my tune because I became a Registered Dietitian and realized that you don’t need to add sugar to fruit (it’s already got sugar in it…what was I thinking???) or maybe it’s because I finally just expanded my dang horizons.
These last few years of fruit discovery have lead to a bit of overcompensation. I’ve tried a fair share of smoothies, fruity breakfast bowls, and fruit desserts. I’ve gone through strawberry phases, resulting in vegan strawberry cake, strawberry energy balls, and strawberry salads. Now I’m moving on to my peach phase.
Here’s the secret to my ginger peach smoothie: I use frozen fruit! You can use fresh fruit, and it’ll be just as good (if not better?!), but frozen fruit is… frozen. Which means that it’s icey, cold, and perfect for every season. No need to add icecubes to this smoothie, because the frozen fruit will ice it up for you.
Bonus: Frozen fruit is frozen at peak ripeness, which means it is at optimum sweetness and nutrient levels! And it’s already chopped up, so this smoothie takes less than five minutes to make.
This ginger peach smoothie is one of my favorite smoothie recipes. That little zing from ginger really takes this fruity goodness to another level!
Blended frozen fruit + yogurt = creeeeamy! Adding yogurt also makes this smoothie so much more filling than just a standard fruit smoothie. That means this smoothie is filling enough for a quick breakfast!
If you make this recipe, be sure to take a photo and hashtag it #COZYPEACHKITCHEN on Instagram or Facebook. I’d love to see what you make!

*I chose non-fat plain greek yogurt for this recipe because it has a neutral flavor. Vanilla or peach would also go well. This recipe also works well with non-dairy yogurt.
*This smoothie can me made with fresh fruit instead of frozen. Substitute exact amounts of fresh for frozen.
